This Silencable Symphony XLR (AES/EBU) is a trade-in, it's one meter long and comes with original box and literature. The rating is acctually 9/10 (no scratches or scuffs) but I rated it a 7/10 because the customer put some gray military anti-vibration compound on the Neutrik XLR connectors which is benefically for the sound but doesn't look pretty.
Silencable from Germany writes about the Symphony line:
After several years of intensive research in our lab and countless hours of listening to music, we have developed completely new approaches to cable technology, shielding materials, and damping technology. Silencable's Symphony Series is intended for use with the finest home music and film installations. This new level of cable design brings you the full realization of the musical experience. This Series also eliminates the reactive inductance and capacitance that create variable performance within electronic systems. The resulting performance of the Symphony Series delivers the timing, spatial and dynamic elements of the finest audio systems without sacrificing the natural tone and timbre.
While using our new SGA (Silver Gold Alloy) conductor material the Active-Shield-Matrix becomes very complex and uses additional damping materials to achieve a better rejection of EMI and RFI and less microphonic effects. Finally, one of the outer sleeves adds additional signal protection as it is made using 3,000 micro-carbon-fibers.
The Symphony Series is demanding – it will reveal the truth with merciless precision. When matched with fine linear components, the result is an astoundingly authentic sense of venue and presence.
